From the files of LOL: Deadline.com reports that Disney wants Chris Pratt to play Indiana Jones in the studio's franchise reboot. A representative for Pratt told HuffPost Entertainment there was nothing to report regarding the rumor; requests made to Disney for comment have not been returned at this time.

In August, a deviantART user imagined what Pratt might look like as Indiana Jones. In November, after the trailer for "Jurassic World" debuted, Pratt again drew comparisons to Ford:

Which is to say, hey, why not? Give Pratt all the franchises. He's awesome. Head to Deadline.com for more.
